Squeaky but clean, this Simpson has some appeal

By Joan Anderman, Globe Staff | July 13, 2006

Ashlee Simpson selected a grand wrought-iron staircase and a pair of colossal candelabra to decorate the stage on her national tour, which included a stop in Boston on Tuesday to play for young girls with tiny purses and patient parents.

Simpson, you may be thinking, isn't really a candelabra kind of gal. And the stairs were entirely superfluous to the performance, which involved a lot of jumping and a few recyclable power chords but not much in the way of sweep or drama.

Simpson's lovely new nose was the standout feature in a 70-minute set of pop-rock tuneage delivered with deeply generic expertise by her five-piece band. Dressed (like her followers) in skinny jeans and a tank top, Simpson sang songs from her 2004 release ``Autobiography" and 2005's ``I Am Me." Those album titles are misnomers, suggesting a surplus of musical personality that the 21-year-old singer doesn't actually produce.

``This is a song I wrote about meeting somebody and having a crush," Simpson said before playing ``Burning Up," which melted along with the rest of her repertoire into a largely indistinguishable mass of muddy guitars, adolescent angst, and assembly-line hooks.
